“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

Southerners don't know how to act when it snows

For those of you outside the US south, it rarely snows here so we don't really know how to act when it does. Well, right now it's snowing like crazy here in Birmingham and literally everybody in the city has decided to race home at the same time, creating a hilarious city-wide traffic jam where nobody gets home.

We don't have salt trucks or scrapers and the infrastructure to deal with any accumulation, so we do the next best thing, drive like lunatics on icy roads on the way to buy absurd amounts of milk and bread. Why we consume more milk and bread when it snows is anybody's guess, but the shelves in area grocery stores are barren already.

Anyway, get a good laugh at us while you can.
